  • 9. MAJOR CAUSES• The License Raj • Rapidly Rising Population • Low Productivity in Agriculture • Under Utilized Resources • Low Rate of Economic Development License Raj refers to the elaborate licenses, regulations and the accompanying red tape that were required to set up and run business in India between 1947 and 1990. The License Raj was a result of India's decision to have a planned economy, where all aspects of the economy are controlled by the state and licenses were given to a selected few. Corruption flourished under this system. The population during the last 45 years has increased at the rate of 2.2% per annum. On average 17 million people are added every year to its population which raises the demand for consumption goods considerably. The level of productivity in agriculture is low due to subdivided and fragmented holdings, lack of capital, use of traditional methods of cultivation, illiteracy etc. This is the main cause of poverty in the country. The existence of under employment and disguised unemployment of human resources and under utilization of resources has resulted in low production in agricultural sector. This brought a down fall in their standard of living. The rate of economic development in India has been below the required level. Therefore, there persists a gap between level of availability and requirements of goods and services. The net result is poverty. Livin XI A

  • 15. HOW TO HELP REDUCE POVERTY?
  • 16. WHAT CAN BE DONE TO ALLIEVATE POVERTY? • Development aid • Microloans • Gender equality • Education For Women • Toronto Dollar • Debt relief A major proportion of aid from donor nations is ‘tied’, mandating that a receiving nation buy products originating only from the donor country. This can be harmful economically. The idea is to loan small amounts of money to farmers or villages so these people can obtain the things they need to increase their economic rewards. A small pump costing only $50 could make a very big difference in a village without the means of irrigation. Addressing gender equality and empowering women are necessary steps in overcoming poverty and furthering development as supported by the human development and capabilities approach and the Millennium Development Goals. Education for women will allow for reduced family size—an important poverty reduction event in its own right. Dropping of duty charges was directly responsible for a "surprisingly large" increase in imports in Africa. Deals can sometimes be negotiated to favor the developing country such as in China, where laws compel foreign multinationals to train their future Chinese competitors in strategic industries and render themselves Livin XI A
